Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Somersworth District Curriculum
The Science curriculum focuses on introducing students to basic biological and physical processes, allowing them to become familiar with the scientific method. Students investigate the world around them through inquiry, and material is scaffolded from simpler to more complex ideas. Once secondary school begins, students are expected to explore specific processes and develop research skills which will help them test and validate scientific hypotheses.
The English Language Arts curriculum begins with a basic recognition of words, sentences, and grammatical structures. As students become comfortable with reading and writing they will be expected to expand their vocabulary, expressing themselves through the written word. Students will also be expected to demonstrate reading fluency, with both fiction and nonfiction prose. As students enter more advanced grades they will utilize research techniques, properly citing their work.

Chalk Talk: Rhetorical Devices: Synecdoche
One rhetorical device that is frequently used in writing, often without the writer even realizing it, is synecdoche. Synecdoche is the use of a word or phrase in which a part is referred to by its whole. For example, if you say that “the United States” won a medal at an event, you are not literally referring to the entirety of the United States, just the team that is representative of it. Similarly, you can refer to a whole by its individual parts. When you tell someone about a new set of wheels you received, you are most likely referring to a vehicle of some sort, not just the wheels themselves.
